Today's Full Moon in Virgo highlights the need for discernment, setting healthy boundaries and taking care of our physical bodies. Some of you will recognize the need for eating more beneficial foods so as to get better nutrients in your system, while others will need to acknowledge they've done all they can and now have to retreat to regroup physically and emotionally. The caution here is not to be in denial and let helplessness overtake you. If you've been honest with yourself and have worked hard to set your house in order, then it's time for a rest. Otherwise, you can start the process by taking steps to clean out emotional clutter as well as your pantry!
The Virgo/Pisces axis is a challenging place because of feelings that may bind you to others which can then have you doubting yourself. After all is said and done, Virgo is the sign of integrity which is a necessary ingredient in any process of self analysis. If you're honest with yourself and not being overly self-critical in your quest for perfection, you will know which limits to set and which ones to let go of. One thing that has helped me through the years with my own Virgo Moon... is the Serenity prayer; here it is: God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change; Courage to change the things I can; and the Wisdom to know the difference.
In the chart of the Full Moon, for the Northeast, I see several planets at or very near the 14 degree mark of the Sun/Moon opposition. They are expansive Jupiter at 14 Leo, innovative Uranus at 14 Aries and harmony-seeking Venus at 15 Aries, as well as powerful Pluto at 15 Capricorn. These planetary energies form aspects called Inconjuncts, which translate to the need for adjustment and patience.
Let's take a closer look at the relationships between the particular planetary forces. The Moon in Virgo is sitting in the 3rd House of communication, inconjunct both Uranus and Venus in Aries in the 10th House of career and reputation. This is a tentative position for the Moon while waiting to see what transpires from the sudden influence of Uranus. It's like saying, "and now for something completely different... " ! You know you're ready for a change but the manner in which it appears may be very surprising. Venus has already moved ahead, by one degree, to find a way to keep balance and fairness in the mix.
Optimistic Jupiter in Leo is hoping that the Sun in Pisces finds an intuitive way to adjust to the coming changes, while at the same time dealing with issues of who's got the power over your daily life... are you the boss of yourself or have you abdicated your right to transform your life in the way you envision it going?! These are not sudden thoughts or situations that you aren't aware of and ready for. The patience and waiting comes from having to adapt to outside forces and conditions over which you have no control. Remember the Serenity prayer in the paragraph above...? Reread it. Then, decide what you can and cannot do about what is being brought to light in your life, especially as it involves your career, business and happiness!
Remember to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground~
